Covenant Children’s in Lubbock announced they will receive a grant for $33,604 from Spirit Halloween.

Each year since Covenant's partnership with Spirit Halloween began in 2010, this campaign has raised money from generous shoppers across the South Plains that has awarded Covenant Children’s more than $165,000. One hundred percent of local donations remain in the Lubbock community.

“We are so blessed to be a partner of Spirit Halloween and a recipient of their Spirit of Children fundraiser,” Covenant Children’s Manager of Integrative Care Christine Neugebauer said. “In a year when so much changed, we are happy to see Spirit Halloween’s generosity and commitment to caring for children remained steadfast.”

This year’s funds will go directly to Covenant Children's Child Life department primarily funding the Artists in Residence program. This program allows artists to provide bedside art experiences and live-streamed tutorials for patients on our pediatric unit, outpatient oncology clinic, pediatric intensive care unit and families in our neonatal intensive care unit.

Some of the funds will also go towards purchasing sensory items for Covenant Children's new sensory cart program for children with sensory sensitivities.
